It’s FINALLY fall here in the midwest. I am coming off a “musically refreshed” weekend. I can’t even tell you how therapeutic live music is to me. I know I sound like a hippie, but go support your fellow creatives and see the people you love live. I feel like I already said the exact same thing for my Coachella post… but I’M GOING TO SAY IT AGAIN CAROLL.
I had about an hour to pack for Austin City Limits (ACL). Beforehand I already decided that I wanted to achieve a 90’s grunge look one day with my Doc Martens and a western look for the other day because I found this fun fringe jacket. I just didn’t know how I was going to execute them. I wanted to gauge how hot it was going to be first.
Packing for me was so easy because I just packed my basics that I can dress up (my black slip dress + white bodysuit + denim shorts). Then I threw in my cowboy boots, jewelry, western hat and toiletries and I was good to go.
YOUR SIMPLE OUTFIT EQUATION FOR THIS FALL.
BASIC + STATEMENT JACKET/COAT + BOOTS = FALL OUTFIT
The basics can be a slip dress, cotton dress, jeans and a tee, bodysuit etc. Just change out your jacket and boots and there you have another look.
Below are my two looks for ACL.
I just packed my bags again and I did the same thing for my upcoming California trip. I actually layer a lot with sweatshirts and long sleeves when I’m out here bc jackets aren’t a necessity here (yes I’m here now I can’t catch a break on the weekends. Congrats on your wedding Emily if you are reading this!) I packed all my neutral slip dresses and I am layering them with sweatshirts when the temperature drops here. It’s hot here you guys!
Would you guys be into a his/hers packing list for fall? Is that lame? I don’t know… that’s something I personally would love to read! Let me know. And BOOMER!
